Physical-science and happiness

 Endorphin: a substance in the brain that “attaches to the same cell receptors that morphine does”. Endorphins substances are released when severe injury occurs, often eliminating all sensation of pain. Works same ways for the emotional severe injuries; at the after mouth of a rage or exhilaration.

 A substance medicinal-scientific named Myosin protein existence in the brain functioning drags the endorphins substance released through filament fibre on the Parietal cortex cell of the brain. The entire process of mechanism functions to create happiness. Physical exercise plays a vital part producing endorphins into the Parietal cortex.

 Parietal cortex, one of the four lobes of the brain “Processes sensory information that had to do with taste, temperature, and touch”. The parietal lobe located in the middle between frontal (at the front) and Occipital and Temporal lobe (at the back). The lobes are bunched into one compacted wavy curled up bundle.

Parietal cortex or lobe functions the sense, feeling, taste, perception, temperature and touch, and processes information within seconds. It sends the signals of emotional feelings of taste of like, dislike and pleasure, comfort and sensation of temperature of hot and cold though the bodily function. It is responsible for cognitive functioning.

The cognitive functioning is inclusive of reasoning, memory, Language, taking information and retaining knowledge. Because it is the process mechanism of information, language and knowledge, it also processes the output function of sharing information, making response to sense and talk.  It is also directly connected to other factors such as mood and physical health.

The hypothalamus is a small gland in the centre of brain, it is a “brain structure made up of distinct nuclei as well as less anatomically distinct areas”. It is presents in all living being with segmented spinal Colum known as vertebrate with brain or nervous systems.  Its function is to release hormones into blood cells and highly connected with central nervous system. From this gland hypothalamus hormones are produced through other parts of cells, released into blood through other cells, gets defused in process and released into the blood vascular system.

As well as it works to function the nervous system, and controls the various of hormones, the hypothalamus is also responsible for the metabolic processes.  Hypothalamus gland is sitting in the tip of the spinal cord in the centre part of all brain cortex or lobes. It is connect to and functions all parts of the brain cells and the body cells. Feelings of all kind is the process of hypothalamus gland and it is vastly it is active functional in fully developed and grown up adults.

This gland helps to control different cells and organs. The hormones from the hypothalamus govern physiologic functions such as temperature regulation, thirst, hunger, sleep, mood, sensual drive, and the release of other hormones within the body.   This portion of the brain is small in size, it is involved in many necessary processes of the body including behavioural, autonomic (involuntary or unconscious), and endocrine functions, as well as metabolism it controls growth and development.

When it is in active functional state it releases the hormones as well as other hormones also the sensual pleasure seeking feeling and enables grown-ups to convey the seeking message and drive into conduct appropriately and co-operatively. The hypothalamus glands functioning aids the acts of process; produce to sensation, release to pleasure and concludes with defuse.

There is another small gland immediate above the hypothalamus at the top and centre section is Thalamus. From this gland nerve fibres projecting out to the cerebral cortex in all directions. The thalamus derives its blood supply from a number of arteries. Its functions are the relaying of sensory and motor signals to the cerebral cortex, and the regulation of consciousness, sleep, and alertness.

 Via the spinothalamic cell it is connected to spinal cord that is a sensory pathway into the spinal cord.  Vice-e versa, information gets passed to the thalamus about pain, temperature, itch and crude touch and pressure. The thalamus has multi-function also plays an important role in regulating states of sleep and wakefulness.

The back cortex of the brain, is the occipital lobe located at the back, is one of the four major lobes of the cerebral cortex in the brain. The occipital lobe is the visual processing centre of the brain containing most of the functional region of the visual cortex. This lobe or cortex functions to work for the eye sight catches and process the signal and messages eye sight sending.

Frontal lobe or the frontal cortex is one of the major cerebral cortex of the brain, and this is the largest cortex or lobe in the brain parts. This section of cortex is the fore brain and associated with reward, attention, short term memory, tasks planning and motivation.

 The frontal lobe or the fore part of brain plays a large role in voluntary movement and the primary motor cortex which regulates activities like walking. It functions the conscience like the ability to project future consequences resulting from current actions, the choice between good and bad actions.

Temporal lobe or the cortex is one of major lobe in brain located on the both side of the cerebral hemisphere.  This lobe plays a key role in the formation of explicit long-term memory, its conduct high level of auditory process for example, works for the hearing and process of visual information.

The cerebral functioning contributes to our happiness and simultaneously, dis-functioning or defect in any cells within those segments equally reason for misery or dissatisfaction in our lives.
